|UPDATE-INITRD(8)||System Manager's Manual||UPDATE-INITRD(8)|
generate initialization ramdisk
a minimal system that searches for the root filesystem and chain boots it as
init(8). It contains
an init system, fsck, filesystem drivers and configuration.
The produced minimal system contains copies of
init(8). If any of
those files are updated then the
initrd(7) should be
regenerated by invoking update-initrd.
update-initrd is aware of
pending upgrades and will instead invoke the new
/sysmerge if an upgrade is pending.
update-initrd is written as a script so the
initrd of the new system can produced even across incompatible ABI changes.
The options are as follows:
- Rather than generating an initrd(7) for the root filesystem, locate files in the sysroot directory instead and store the result as sysroot/boot/sortix.initrd.
